Floor-crossing has cost has cost former United Christian Democratic Party (UCDP) MPL Rochester Matlholwa a place in the North West legislature.

Matlholwa is now taking the legislature to court after it endorsed Jood Tlhagale as the UCDP's new MPL.

Matlholwa was expelled from the party when he defected to the South African People's Party.

He lost a high court challenge on September 9 to reclaim his position.

Thandi Modise, North West legislature's speaker, said the legislature had done nothing wrong because Matlholwa had lost in court. - Elisha Molefe
